Every new age has certain unique features to its name. Similarly, the 21st century has the boon of technology to its name. Technology which has changed every aspect of our daily lives. Technology which has transformed our very lives to the very core. Technology which has made us faster and smarter. In the financial sector, technology entered in the form of digital transaction. A step which not only connected the entire globe into a single grid, but also usher in a new phenomenon called globalization- an interconnected and interdependent world. The digitalization in the financial sector was initiated by a small rectangular plastic card; the credit card. This card can be used to transact money, and buy stuffs without actually paying the money in physical form. The payment is done later on in digital format. This credit card not only eased the entire process of cash collection from banks physically; a time and energy consuming job nonetheless. It also initiated a Shopping spree among the customers. As the card made money available anytime, businesses were directly benefited from it. From its very onset the banking players were able to predict the massive impact it would have on everything and would rather change everything, they came into an understanding with service providers?such as retail outlets, Shopping centers, Shopping malls, e-commerce sites, travel websites and others. It meant that if customers use their card to buy stuff from any of these websites or Shopping destinations, then they would enjoy huge discounts, money backs and many more exciting offers which are absent if the transaction is done in cash. This understanding came as an icing to the cake. It not only charged up the customers, but also connected Shopping and commercial establishments around the globe in a grid.
As credit cards are further subdivided into #CARD_TYPE cards, which can be used for Shopping at anyplace around the world, the agreements led to a global village, a deeply interconnected world, where everything is connectedto everything. This fever of digital transaction rocked even the shores of developing countries such as India, where also people became crazy to possess credit cards and shop digitally to avail all those extravagant benefits and offers. In the Indian scenario, the American Express uncashed most out the situation, with their superior business connections, brand positioning and marketing skill. And as a result majority of the Indian credit card or digital transaction market is possessed by the bank.
